#2 Professional Hackathon
The professional hackathon is what sets CodeLaunch apartment from other seed accelerator competitions. The professional hackathon is an all-out, coffee and energy drink-filled coding marathon where professional software and application development teams are paired with CodeLaunch Finalists to build out as much of their product as they can. That product is then demoed live and for the first time in front of the CodeLaunch audience, who then vote for their Overall Winner.

Since its inception, CodeLaunch has given over $800,000 in exclusive seed services to CodeLaunch finalists. These invaluable services range from marketing services to law services and everything in between. CodeLaunch provides everything you need to get your startup off the ground.
